The fourth point project faced fierce opposition from Iraqi public opinion,Because the Iraqi people counted this agreement as a type of American colonialism on the country. The United States worked to exploit Iraq's economic resources, especially oil,The opening of Iraqi markets to United States goods ,The breadth of United States influence in Iraq,And the decline of British influence in Iraq.
